Well ive been wanting a Muskie for the longest but since people usually troll for them and Im not a fan of it i didnt think Id ever get one. I did land one earlier this year but he was about 22" and I snagged him on a Vibe pumping it for walleye. This one in particular was caught in MN while on vacation and was caught casting for bass. He came on a 5" Yamamoto Senko in Watermelon. I was watching the guys up front flip the docks and I was just cleaning up in the rear swimming my Senko when I heard a large splash. I look back and see two more HUGE splash/ I then stop and let him take the bait and boom that was it. I thought I caught the next record bass for MN since it is only 8lbs and it took a Senko. Mintue's later it comes up and its this beaut. My cousin caught one earlier on a Ribbt from bass fishing also and it was 40+". I got to release both fish's since the guys never caught a Ski before. It was a great experience to actually live what Ive been reading about on this site and watching numerous Muskie videos on youtube. Enough babbling!
